Same sex schools are not good for education. They don't prepare students for real life situations. In real life, there are both genders and you have to be able to work in any environment. My opponent might say that there are less distractions in same sex schools. However, I say that in real life those distractions are there and students need to learn how to work efficiently in difficult environments. Do you want students to learn how to work in environments that are unlike the real world, or do you want them to be prepared for real situations.

Same sex schools are better for education. They create a less distracting learning environment for the students. My opponent might say that same sex schools are bad for education because you need to be able to work in a multi gender situation. But school is for learning, and it's harder to learn when your distracted by school drama caused by both of the genders creating conflict. And those skills are very easy to learn when your older, because your more mature. Would you rather have your child be well educated and have a less distracting social life or have your kid not as well educated but with gender variety.

Same sex schools are not better for education. When children aren't learning and working with the opposite gender, they aren't learning how to work with the opposite gender. My opponent may say that school is for learning and the less distractions there are, the more the students learn. I argue that school is for preparing students to be successful later on in life. To be successful you need to know how to work with all people and all genders. School is for helping students become successful, not for learning facts in a easy non distracting environment.

Same sex schools are better for education. Students stay focused on learning and sports, which are very important factors for a students education. My opponent might say that when students aren't learning they are learning on how to cope with the opposite gender. Students don't need to learn something like that when they are well educated and have overcome gender differences. So students don't need to learn how to cope with it because there's nothing to cope for them.

Single-sex classrooms can make everything become easier for teachers to match their didactic style to the behavioural characteristics of different students. Girls seem to participate in learning when they in a quiet setting so that they can team up and come to an agreement which much better than the boy does. Boys tend to favours a classroom that is more competitive, physically active, and louder. Lots of researches show that girls take the most benefits from being together for math and science"s lessons. They feel more confident about their abilities without hesitate"how they appear to boys, which also prove that they have more chance to participate in class discussions. Boys, who are typically to become more self-assured in math and science, dominate discussions. Moreover, teachers tend to call on boys more often than girls.
